Britse kunstenaar Barry Reigate aan de slag met wiskundetesten uit de lagere school

Dazed Digital: Tell us more about the concept/inspiration behind your latest solo exhibition ‘Equation’?
Barry Reigate: The basic core of the work comes from children’s maths tests, taken from SATs papers. What I like about the source material is that it seems to have some kind of value in academic inspiration. The questions, equations, carried information that promised (in a way) a better life through academic qualification. The diagrams themselves within the questions were what interested me. I wanted to empty the symbolic content, by this I mean, the questions/words on volume etc.”
